Building on over a decade of success in the conferences space, Naficy Pictures is rebranding under the name of its events service, GlobeScreen. GlobeScreen has operated film industry conferences since 2009, in London, New York, and now Los Angeles, where it will host the 11th Annual GlobeScreen Conference, in March.
GlobeScreen has hosted dozens of renowned entertainment industry producers and executives at its conferences, from companies such as Magnolia Pictures, IFC Films, FilmNation Entertainment, UK Film Council and Ingenious Media.
During the 10th Annual GlobeScreen Conference in New York last year, former Focus Features CEO, and Academy Award nominated Producer, James Schamus, spoke to IndieWire, in a keynote, during the 10th anniversary celebration of the event.
Leading the new company will be the former management team of Naficy Pictures. Dara Naficy, Managing Director, is relocating from LA to London, opening an office for GlobeScreen UK. Christopher Oglio, Executive Director, remains based in New York, overseeing development and operations for GlobeScreen US.
